Council to light up Enniskillen Castle on selected dates during March

Published: 15th March 2017

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council will be marking various events taking place during the month of March by illuminating Enniskillen Castle in a range of colours.

On Friday 17 March, Enniskillen Castle will be lit-up green as part of Project St Patrick’s celebrations of Ireland’s patron saint in Co. Fermanagh. The iconic building will be just one of a number of buildings and landmarks around the world that will be bathed in green to mark St Patrick’s Day.

Enniskillen Castle will then be illuminated red on Friday 24 March in recognition of Sport Relief, a UK-wide event which brings together sport and entertainment to raise money to help vulnerable people in the UK and in some of the world’s poorest countries. Employees at the BT Call Centre in Enniskillen will be giving up their time voluntarily to staff the phones, to receive donations from members of the public. BT, which is supporting Sport Relief fundraising efforts, made the request to the Council to light Enniskillen Castle red.

Enquiries regarding illuminating Council properties and charity support should be made to Louise McLaughlin, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council’s Community Services team, by telephoning 0300 303 1777 or emailing
